From Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney and executive producers Oprah Winfrey, Michael B. Jordan, Dee Harris-Lawrence, Mike Kelley and Melissa Loy, David Makes Man centers on a 14-year-old prodigy from the projects who is haunted by the death of his closest friend and relied on by his hardworking mother to find a way out of poverty.
He must choose between the streets that raised him or the higher education that may offer him a way out. Set in South Florida, the series is inspired by events in McCraney’s own life and explores childhood trauma and the power of imagination to survive.
